Biography

Dr. Yate Ding is a research fellow within Architecture, Climate and Environment Research Group. He worked for 5 years in the fields of civil engineering and building construction following completion of his undergraduate degree, BSc (Hons) in Civil Engineering. He returned to academia to complete an MSc in Renewable Energy and Architecture and following this, he completed his PhD in Science Engineering (Renewable Energy Storage) at the University of Nottingham in 2014. His PhD research was focused on high capacity heat energy storage for building applications. Apart from design and implementation of proposed models laboratory tests, he was involved in building numerical models, and analysing the performance of prototype systems. His past research experience also includes the experimental and numerical studies on three research projects (Seasonal Thermochemical Renewable Energy Storage Systems, a High Performance Vacuum Tube Window and a High Performance Thermochemical Energy Storage Pumping Pipe) funded by DECC and TSB. His research interest lies in thermal energy storage systems for sustainable building services and envelops with the aim of achieving high efficient low/zero carbon technologies and contributing to the development of effective and low carbon economic and energy systems.

Current Research

Currently, I am committed to a TSB project: Innovative Energy Saving and Climate Control System for Greenhouses (IESCCSG). This is a Innovate UK (TSB) funded project being carried out in conjunction with industrial partners in the UK, and involves the development of a low-cost, energy saving, climate control system. The energy efficient system will integrate various technologies, including effective heat insulation solar glass, vacuum insulation panels, windcatchers and LED lights in addition to an underground soil-based seasonal thermal energy storage system.
